Samsung promises to fix Galaxy S8’s ‘red tint’ problem

by John_A

Quite a few of Samsung’s newly-released Galaxy S8 handsets have been showing a noticeable reddish tint on their screens. While the company initially said that the problem was easily fixed with a manual calibration, it’s since decided to roll out an update to fix the problem directly, while also increasing the color range of the hot new Android devices.

Samsung’s flagship smartphone is getting some great reviews, so it behooves the Korean-based company to make these fixes as quickly as possible. After the shame of the Note 7 explosions, Samsung likely wants to squash any potential trouble with its new phone as quickly as possible.

Of course, the company downplayed the issue in a statement to the Korean Herald, saying, “We will upgrade the software because of some dissatisfied customers although there is no problem in the phone itself.”

In addition to fixing the red tint issue, the upgrade will also expand the color range of its screens via software so you can set any red tint even lower. Samsung plans to roll out the update next week, though you can still go into the settings and manually calibrate. We’ve reached out to Samsung and will update this post with any new details.
